  1. PARTIES. This Terms of Service (“Agreement”) constitutes a legal contract between you (the “Client” or “you”) and CARBON LAW GROUP, a Professional Law Corporation (the “Firm”, “we”, or “us”), and is intended for use pursuant to the offer made on https://carbonlg.com/trademark-protection-plan/ (including www.carbonlg.com, all related subdomains and social media or other advertising profiles, the “Site”). We encourage you to review this Agreement with your regular attorney(s) before you sign. Please note that by accepting this Agreement, you also agree to abide by our Website Terms of Use and you understand our Website Privacy Policy.
  2. SCOPE. You have selected the Firm to represent you in connection with the Trademark Protection Plan, as may be amended. The current services offered within the scope of the plan are (a) monthly trademark name watch report, (b) one cease and desist letter for each 6 months of consecutive subscription, and (c) monthly phone call review with an attorney for a specified amount of time (together, the “Scope of Representation”). The Scope of Representation may include, only with your additional written consent, drafting cease and desist letters, trademark consultations, trademark application and registration, intellectual property audits, and general corporate and intellectual property counsel (per your written consent, and in addition to the Scope of Representation, as applicable, our “Services”) . We will ask you for your written consent prior to commencing any of the work outside the defined Scope of Representation.The Firm will make reasonable efforts to keep the Services available to you each month. However, certain technical or capacity-related difficulties may, from time to time, result in temporary interruptions. To the extent permissible under applicable law, the Firm reserves the right, periodically and at any time, to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, functions and features of our Services, or the Scope of Representation, or any feature or function contained therein. You understand and agree that the Firm has no obligation to maintain, support, upgrade, or update our Services, or to provide all or any specific Services.The Firm’s goal is to provide you with excellent legal services.

When you register for a Paid Subscription online, you consent to get access to our Services beginning the next business day. The Firm retains sole discretion to review any payments or Paid Subscriptions and to deny any Paid Subscription. Ongoing payments must be made monthly (calculated by 30 or 31 days, or based on the length of the then-current month) after the initial payment date (each, a “Due Date”).The Firm may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Paid Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Services and terminating this Agreement. Please ensure that you read all notifications related to this Agreement, our Services, or your Paid Subscription.

The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription month, and this Agreement will no longer be valid. Should you wish to re-subscribe to the Services based on the Scope of Representation, you will have to sign a new engagement agreement.
